I got Gyo the same holiday. I really enjoyed Uzumaki (or really anything by Junji Ito), though I don't know if manga counts as books.

The movie's gonna be in two parts. This one's pretty much gonna be the first half.

Re: Books: What are you currently reading?

I love Dune. I'm not sure there is enough for a series, unless you bring in stuff from other books. There just isn't that much that can happen on screen. That said, there is a lot of complexity, and it is going to be interesting to see how it is done. I think the saving grace is that the director is a fan of the book, and I think he has a better grasp of the depth of the book, more so than the previous movie and miniseries. Definitely more than Jodorowski's abortive attempt. I'm so glad that was never made. I need to go back and read it again.

I never read Dune or know anything about it , but I did just see that Modiphious Entertainment is coming out or has already come out with a Dune rpg.

They have have already done and still pumping out content for both Star Trek and Conan rpgs. Working on a Fallout rpg. They have done excellent work with their Fallout and Elder Scrolls miniatures games, which I own a lot of and play.

Sorry for the commercial �� I saw Dune mentioned here and had just seen it on Modiphious website.

That is pretty cool. Based on what I could see of the system, this could be a lot of fun. Makes me wish I had a rpg group. And the time to be in a rpg group...

"Where is Nuts?"
--Alan Pinkerton, telegraphing to his agents in code about Lincoln's train progress in Pennsylvania in 1861, from Lincoln On The Verge


I cannot recommend this new book too highly, and I'm sorry I'm almost finished. Its great, not only for the hairs breath espionage escapes from accident and assassination attempts, which have to be read to be believed, but a picture of America painfully evolving, with Lincoln discovering his real and vital message along the rail journey from Illinois to Washington D.C. during secession through IL, IN, OH, PA, NY, NJ, DE, and MD!

We are perhaps going thorough a similar passage today.
